A venous thrombosis of the left ilio-femoro-popliteal was diagnosed and the patient received an anticoagulation therapy. One month later, she presented&nbsp;&nbsp; an arterial aneurysm of the right primitive iliac artery confirmed by an angio-CT exam. Physical examination revealed necrotic pseudofolliculitis, a bilateral posterior uveitis with papillitis. The diagnosis of BD was made. A corticosteroid treatment was conducted (solumedrol 1g/day for 3 days then &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;1 mg/kg/day of prednisone equivalent for 6 weeks then progressively tapered until 10 mg/day) associated with cyclophosphamide (1g/month for 12 months).&nbsp; An angio CT scan 12 months later was performed and objectivated the progression in size of the aneurysm. Therefore, a surgical&nbsp;&nbsp; treatment was decided and consisted on a lay flat of the aneurysm and graft interposition with polytetrafluoroethylene prosthesis. The post-operative outcome was favorable.</p> Mouna Snoussi, Chifa Damak, Moez Jallouli, Faten Frikha, Raida Ben Salah, Sameh Marzouk, Imed Frikha, Zouhir Bahloul ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 02 Apr 2021 00:00:00 +0000
